We would like to extend our thanks for your interest in applying for and acquiring scholarships.  UTC scholarship funds are limited and the awarding process is competitive. Meeting the eligibility requirements does not guarantee a student will receive a scholarship. The best way to improve your candidacy is to always submit all required materials as soon as possible.  Keep in mind, to be screened for UTC Scholarship funds, all accepted students must complete the UTC Online Scholarship Application.  First-Time Freshmen, in particular, should always apply for scholarships within 3-5 days of their acceptance by UTC Admissions.


The UTC Online Scholarship Application

New Transfer students for Fall 2017 can still apply until July 1, 2017. Get a jump start and review our the tutorial below for some quick instructions first. Then you’re ready to access the UTC Online Scholarship Application.  Don’t let the opportunity to apply get past you - Apply Now!

First-Time Freshmen and Continuing Students can still apply as well but will only be considered for endowed scholarship funds as all renewable scholarships have been awarded.


As always, keep in mind that university scholarships are very competitive and funds are limited, so please apply early. Also, be sure the information you include in your application is accurate. Finally, don’t forget that the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) opened OCTOBER 1, 2016, for the next academic year.  We encourage you to complete this online as soon as, as it provides much needed information as well. The FAFSA is also your application for the Tennessee Lottery HOPE Scholarship, so put October 1 on your calendar every year.  For more information on federal/state financial aid, specifically UTC's Steps to Apply, visit the UTC Financial Aid home page.
